Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

I saw it once at Heathrow, but I didn't know US airport plane spotting on YouTube was a thing.

Need to figure out when we can see bampilot06 do a landing.

I watched a good bit of that game selecting the Mets play by play. The snakes lost 8-4.

Pirates now down 6-5 in a back and forth contest. Probably going to sleep soon. I've got work in the morning.

I'll probably be watching 'til they play Randy Newman. I love it when all games are free games on MLB.TV

Every now and then Mom will call and say her scanner's not working. Scanner? Just take a pic with your phone!

First time she caught me off guard and I wound up digging around, uninstalling drivers, downloading and reinstalling drivers...

If so, it's because I face more legitimate annoyances than you do.

I think Mojo is too busy to be sitting at Dallas all day waiting for me to land. Maybe one day he will be on one of my flights.
